Jim Goldberg Wins Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2011

Last night the prestigious Deutsche Börse prize for photography was awarded to Jim Goldberg.

Nominated for his exhibition Open See at the Photographers' Gallery in October 2009. The timely and politically relevant exhibition documents "the experiences of refugee, immigrant and trafficked populations who travel from war torn, socially and economically devastated countries to make new lives in Europe"

Miranda Sawyer and the TPG team talk about the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2011 from The Photographers' Gallery on Vimeo.

Coincidentally, one of Goldberg's iconic images appears in the centre of the main photograph of our post about the Deutsche Börse prize free exhibition, which continues at Ambika P3, Marylebone, until 1 May 2011.
